Student Artwork on Exhibit

On display in the hallway outside the Board of Education Room on the third floor of the T. J. Connor building visitors will enjoy the third-grade handprint project by students in Julia Mazzota’s class. The assignment was for the students to explore color, value, and design. Before starting their project students brainstormed, created, and shared different designs to use in their artwork. They then had to create an interesting composition using only black and white value in the background, and color in the hands.

“The challenge was to make the background (only black and white) just as interesting as the colorful hands,” said Mazzota.

The fifth-grade jungle project was a landscape project but also explored the difference of fantasy and reality. “This project allowed the students to use a variety of mediums and really explore the use of color,” she said.
